My last “real” holiday was a long-deserved trip to Taiwan with my better half, in December last year. So, when I was informed by Samsung Malaysia that I won a 4D/3N all-expenses paid holiday to Club Med Cherating Beach, I was chuffed. My beach bum ambitions were one step closer to reality, I thought.
First, a little bit about Club Med Cherating Beach. Now, I’ve always heard stories about Club Med (some pretty wild!) but have never actually set foot in nor experienced any of the global franchise’s resorts.
In Malaysia, it’s nestled in the heart of lush greenery – over 80 hectares in fact, 30kms north of Kuantan town, Pahang on the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia. It is in fact, the first Club Med resort in Asia.
The great thing about Club Med Cherating Beach is its back-to-nature vibe. Just a stone’s throw away from the resort is unspoiled green, a wide sandy beach and the South China Sea.
It’s a fantastic place for family, kids and friends, with plenty to do the entire day.
An unforgettable holiday? You bet.
With shorts, shades, sunscreen and flip flops packed; and armed with the latest Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017), off to Cherating we went.
